TOY BOX TURTLE (Still in Progress)
Today I decided to work on my sea turtle that is painted onto one of the end pieces of our son’s toy box that I took apart. This is in acrylics which is definitely more of a challenge for me. I worked on it for a few hours today so that is enough!
The splotches of paint on the outer edges are on the masking tape I put around the sides to protect the wood frame. It will come off when I am done.
I have found that the nice thing about acrylics is that if you screw up (which I have done that a lot with this one,) you can paint over your mistakes to correct them! There is still a lot of “under painting” here. So the details are still to come. Plus, I’ll probably add some foliage around the turtle. So here it is so far!
Night before last I wrote the first draft of my magazine article assignment. It felt good to finally just get all my notes into a rough draft. I still have other stuff to do to complete the assignment after I finish the article. But I am setting it aside for a few days to keep thinking on it. Also, I realized my due date is actually a week later than I thought it was. It isn’t due until August 15th! That made me happy!
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
